Windshield Washer - Winter Use


Windshield washer fluid (also called windshield wiper fluid, wiper fluid, or washer fluid) is a fluid for motor vehicles that is used in cleaning the windshield while the vehicle is being driven.
The fluid comes in many forms and may require dilution before being applied, although many solutions available in North America come premixed with no diluting required. Dilution factors will vary depending on season, for example, in winter the dilution factor may be 1:1, whereas during summer the dilution factor may be 1:10. Several types of fluids are available on the market such as ready-made fluid, which is used 'neat' or as-is and sachet of crystals, which is also diluted with water. Anti-freeze, or methylated spirits, may be added to a mixture to give the product a lower freezing temperature. But, methanol is harmful when breathed in, so more popular now is an ethanol winter mix, e.g. PAV, water, ethanol (or isopropanol), and ethylene glycol. Source:  Wikipedia
